Say "I Do" to the Perfect Wedding Deal

Besides you (of course!), your wedding venue decor is definitely going to be the visual highlight of your big day. While you can hire someone to put shiny things in vases for you, it can be far more satisfying  and less expensive to put together the decor yourself. We've gone through our go-to craft idea site, Pinterest, and picked out some of our favorite DIY reception decorations that are a snap to put together and will look amazing.

Thrifted Succulents: Succulents are a fantastic alternative to flowers: Neutral in color, they lend a green lushness to your tables. They don't droop or wilt, and are a cinch to take care of. Visit some of your favorite thrift stores for different types of containers (bowls, large glasses, even a small teapot) in coordinating colors, then simply fill with dirt and plants.

Paper Tree: You still get the ambiance of flora without having to worry about killing anything. Consisting of branches and scrapbook paper, this centerpiece is eye-catching and so easy to put together (full tutorial here).

Full of Fruit: Again, another awesome alternative to flowers. Tall vases full of brightly-colored fruit (think limes, lemons, tangerines or apples) alternating with vases filled with live, leafy branches creates a stunning look. For added ambiance, surround the vases with tea lights.

Country Flowers:
God bless Mason jars. Without them, crafters would be forced to put things in stuffy vases. This simple but lovely arrangement combines elegant, coordinating flowers (don't forget to get ones in season to save extra money) with the warm, homemade feel of various-sized Mason jars.

Wine Candelabra: For a dramatic look and feel, this stunning display consists of two things: Clean, empty wine bottles and candles. Could not be easier! The best part of making this centerpiece is getting those wine bottles empty in the first place.
